License Policy

I have 20 Doc cals, I  have seen 10 users using the same doc cal, since they are logging in with generic id. Is there any policy of Qlikview which talks about license,

Re: License Policy

Hi,

Yes, this would be against the license agreement. Each user should be using their own login. That is why you purchased the CALs that you did.

Re: License Policy

I agree this is against license, we have applied  the fix to stop it. But do we have it documented anywhere in licensing policy.

Re: License Policy

Hi, Parag.

You may want to advise the business that this introduces a number of risks:

1) Abusing the licence agreement with QlikView - can incur a fine.

2) Security risk. If there is a security breach, who is responsible when everyone is using the same userid ?  - can cause reputation or financial damage.

3) This fails audit. This will be flagged up as a major issue by your auditors and almost certainly breach data security. - will cause reputation and financial damage.

Neil
